So this is our bedroom--a little old-fashioned, a little modern, very calm. The only new thing we've gotten for the bedroom is the bedside lamps, which we picked up last time we were at Ikea. The rest is just a reconfiguration of our old things. I've had a lot of fun rearranging our stuff in a new place.
(Please ignore the blinds...the blinds have got to go. There's a gear stripped on them, so they don't open or close at all. Plus I think curtains would look so much softer and cozier. If anyone has suggestions for curtains or curtain tutorials, send them my way. I'm thinking something simple, light and airy.)
My bedside table belonged to my great uncle. I love the simple lines of it and the natural wood finish. I've got some of Pablo Neruda's poetry for brushing up on my nearly non-existent Spanish language skills, a peony, and a Black Apple print. The girl's shirt has a quote from the Smiths on it--"There is a light that never goes out."
For now the vintage trunk that previously lived at the foot of our bed is serving as K's bedside table. We'll probably pick up a vintage table sometime, but I do like the look of the trunk as a table. I love the whimsy of the stacked books to get the right height for the lamp. We are definitely bibliophiles and have more books than we have space, so finding new ways to store books is always a good thing. I put another Black Apple print here along with a cupful of mint.
There are still boxes in the corners of rooms, but we're getting there. I'll show you more of our new apartment soon.
Hope your week is going well!
